"The chief arbiter of Web standards, Tim Berners-Lee, has an important choice to make this week. He must decide whether or not to allow media and technology companies to add socially harmful Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) into the technical capabilities of the Web, with a proposal called Encrypted Media Extensions (EME).
